Brackmills businesses asked to shape the estate’s future

Decade of Change
Mon, 09/24/2018 - 15:48

Businesses on Brackmills are being asked to help shape the estate by identifying priorities and key projects they would like tackled in the next five years.

Over the next six weeks employers are being urged to complete detailed surveys, which Brackmills Business Improvement District (BID) will then use to draft a five-year business plan for the estate. Download the surveys HERE.

This business plan, based solely on the business feedback, will then be voted on next March – when businesses are encouraged to vote YES for a third five-year term as a BID.

Sara Homer, BID Executive Chair for Brackmills, said: “What a difference a decade makes. Back in 2009 we asked businesses to vote for BID status and tell us what mattered most to them.  
“We took this feedback, ran projects, invested funding and the estate has since transformed from a crime-ridden, unkempt estate to one that is safe, secure, vibrant and a location of choice for businesses big and small.

“It’s now time for businesses to have their say again and shape the next five years, so we can make plans for the estate’s future and ensure Brackmills remains one of the UK’s premier logistics and transport hubs.”

On Tuesday, 25th September, from 5pm the BID is holding its business event ‘A Decade of Change and the Next Five Years’. Find out more about the estate’s Decade of Change by visiting
